The rider was severely injured and was transported to hospital, where he died of his injuries overnight. The 42-year-old driver of the pickup truck did not suffer any injuries and remained on scene after the collision.

The investigation into the crash had the roads partially closed to traffic for about five hours, with police opening the roads again at nearly 10 p.m.
